Contemporary review of publication, mentioning recent performance (1831):
"This was performed by Mr. Neate at one of his concerts.... The first movement is the least striking of the whole.... The Andante... will gain the suffrages of all who possess real taste.... The Minuet and Trio have both a great deal of that very rare commodity, originality, and abound in spirit well kept up.... The finale, differing in style from the other parts of the Trio, derives much of its effect from contrast.... This work requires a superior pianist to execute it, but it exhibits none of those freaks which only the contriver of them can play...." (from Wikipedia entry, possibly quoting The Harmonicon, 1831, p.87.)
